Ian Mac is 6'6" and was a total animal.....

Took the front end off a morewood and actually got his hands behind his head while still holding the bars in the crash! He knew there was a crack and gave it 10/10 anyway!

The ATX was a few years ago and it was a miracle he survived

Yeah The writing picture is grip #1 "rebirth" when jerry dyer left dirt... Have # 2 and 3 somewhere!!

Yeah those pics are old im after the 1999/00 ear as parts are easier to source, Ive found NOS hope dh4's and e4's which Ill prob go for not much difference in look only on the calliper as the dh4 has an extra piece of material from what i can tell, not that the average joe will be able to tell.

Black or Silver is still the hardest choice to make grrrrrr

Ps: Im 6' 4" and the wrong side of 100kgs maybe my already cracked atx wont last ahah I cant see me hitting me to many jumps on the way to get bread and milk thou

Well the good news is a tatty repainted one popped on ebay for $100, after goint to look at it this afternoon I snapped it up as the chainstays are clean and crack free. Just need to get them off the bike know which Im having issues with.

Sorry for the delay on this build but I hope you can appreciate that I like to do things properly

After fighting with this for almost a day and the help of people on this forum and a few others, I managed to get the rear chainstays off.
